's bring back our panel, senior writer for the weekly standard, steven hayes, kirsten powers, and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer, contributors all. we're talking, charles, what this means tonight, what the president perhaps needs to do, what he may want to do tonight before this crowd. >> i think his job, really, is to let the people know, have suffered and continued to suffer that the nation suffers with them of the that's his role, that's his job. it's not him as president, he speaks on behalf of the station, as you said, so they understand how much the grief is shared and i mean, it's -- there's never any ultimate consolation, but there's a modicum of it, and the grief that we share ap so many others, in fact, a great nation is mourning at the same time. >> the families had filed in and into our designated reserved seats earlier, nina, and really, meeting with them had a special private time, but the message is really to the whole community and to the nation tonight. >> and he was delayed, as we saw, in beating with those families. i'm sure it must have been incr
us now, former specialrm counsel to president clintonide lonnie davis, steven hayes, senior writer for the weeklythey standard, but fox newthcontr contributors, and that thank you both for being here. i am uncomfortable saying that this is susch a big deal, but t polls suggest if we may look to these very quickly, the makeup of the electorate not appreciably different from 2008 if we could look at that graphic police. 74 percent white back in the weight. 72 percent this year to read we. see the numbers rise slightly. but the reality is that theht support for president obama for president obama of monks in the demographic groups, if we could take a look at that, the support for president obama, i'm sure that this is, you know, very interesting. he lost about four points of support. he lost suppor as well down 2%. hispanics picked up 4%. asians pickd up remarkably. a very small percentage. that does not look like such a big deal because it represents basically what happened in l.a. >> we have to look at politics. this network is trying to explain why he predicted a romney
stevens. it's been nearly two months. so where is the justice? steven hayes "weekly standard" fox news contributor, steven good morning to you. >> good morning, bill. bill: almost three months really coming up on that. this is what the "associated press" wrote 14 days ago. key security commanders and witnesses say they were never questioned. no suspects have been named. gunmen seen participating in the assault walk freely in the eastern libyan city. what is going on here? >> i think it's a big problem for the obama administration and for the country. the president was right on september 12th when he said that the world needs to understand that when the united states is messed with there will be retribution, and what we've seen thus far, whether it's in the ap story, or a new york times story with one of the suspected plotters of the attack sipping fruit drinks with reporters, or, you know, the fact that the fbi continue get on the ground for several weeks after the attack there doesn't seem to be the urgency that the president suggested that there would be. i think the world needs to s
will be with us throughout the evening, senior writer for the weekly standard, steven hayes, and nina and charles krauthammer. these are tough to listen to. charles, we have listened to this a few days and this is the challenge of the president as he is ready for the rare service. any thoughts? >>reporter: you have a human tragedy and the family tragedies, community tragedy and then a national tragedy because of the way the news is spread. the president's role is to try to crystallize that. i am glad to hear from ed henry this is not a time to speak about politics. there is something obscene about jumping in at a time of great national grief and in some ways disorientation with a program of political action before the dead are even interred. some decency requires people should at least step back, wait for the emotions to pass, not that you can't do analysis and try to think through what is behind what might have contributed, but, before people enact agendas they should allow the mourning to take place. >> this is, really, a consoler-in-chief role for president obama. that community...we have just
, steven hayes, kirsten powers, nina easton and charles krauthammer. and steven, we talked about what the president wants to do tonight. >> i think his main message is to communicate to the people across the country that we're altogether in this. that we're with the people in newtown, that we're thinking about you, we're praying alongside you. he really does have to be the consoler in chief. while it does seem odd to say it this early because the pain is so raw and so fresh, it's inevitable that this service will probably be the first step in what will be a long and incredibly difficult recovery process and the president's job in some ways is to begin that process with words of healing along with leading clergymen, clergy folks with him tonight. >> bret: charles, we've heard from ed henry that this will not be a policy speech, that this will be a consoling speech, this will be a uniting speech. we heard a lot on the sunday shows, about policy projections going forward, but not tonight. >> not tonight, but i do think that this event is likely to be a watershed, i mean, it's hard to pre
